    "The writers use their poetry not only to bear witness to these atrocities but also to examine internal scars that often are beyond healing." 
    The Village Voice
    "Highly recommended."
    Educational Media Reviews Online
Academy® Award nominated director Katja Esson's (FERRY TALES, LATCHING ON, SKYDANCER) exquisitely made film explores survival, strength and the power of the human heart, body and soul-as expressed through poetry. She highlights six different poets, who individually survived Hiroshima, the Holocaust, China's Cultural Revolution, the Kurdish Genocide in Iraq, the Rwandan Genocide, and the Iranian Revolution. By summoning the creative voice of poetry to tell stories of survival and witness, each reclaims humanity and dignity in the wake of some of history's most dehumanizing circumstances.
